John Jay College of Criminal Justice (Forensic Toxicology)
Texas Tech University (Master's)
My name is Jessica, and I am currently pursuing my Master's degree at Texas Tech in Forensic Science. I obtained my bachelor's degree from John Jay College in Forensic Toxicology, and majored in law in highschool, from which I graduated with high honors. I have experienced science in the lab, in the field, and in the kitchen, having even establish my own small business! I believe that the best way to be successful is to diversify your education and experiences, and to be due diligent in all pursuits, because the results are worth the hard work!
Having experience in and outside of the sciences, I am comfortable with many writing tasks, from book reports to lab reports, persuasive papers to instructive speeches, and creative essays alike. Within the science field, I have made it a priority for myself to be confident in my understanding of fundamental concepts, and feel that with a grasp on the basics, application to more and more complex areas is easily achievable. I find that the best approach in learning these fundamental concepts - be they in science or any other discipline - is to be allowed to learn and discover on your own with guidance and support along the way. I bring this to my tutoring strategy, and find that students that are allowed to make their own connections and learn in their own way are the most successful overall, and that as a tutor, my place is to support that process and encourage discovery and self-learning. I have been taught by this manner in the past, and feel that it has benefitted me the most, as it has prepared me to work my way through any situation - not just the cookie-cutter textbook examples that almost never present themselves in the real world! Simply giving a student the tools to learn and understand no their own is ultimately the best way to help them overcome any obstacles and be confident in themselves, regardless of the challenge.
Feel free to contact me with any questions about writing, reading, or basic science tutoring; I'd love to help!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I have been cooking with my mother since I was old enough to sit up by myself on the floor next to her, and have grown up in the kitchen. I'm always trying new things and make dinner for my family every night with fresh baked desserts at least three times a week! Currently I own my own small business making chocolate favors, 3D Tablepieces, and dipped goods, a portion of the proceeds from which go to a local animal foundation.
I majored in law in high school and graduated with high honors, and received my bachelor's of science from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Forensic Toxicology. Currently I am pursuing a Master's of Science in Forensic Science at Texas Tech University. While my main focus in my higher educational career has been science, its application to the law requires that I have a firm understanding of the criminal justice system as well.
During my undergraduate work at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, many of the courses that I was required to take were focused on genetics and mastery of the fundamentals of DNA, RNA, and the biochemistry behind that specific discipline of science. Specifically, I have taken biochemistry and genetics courses to introduce the central concepts, and have been expected, since taking those courses and passing with B average or higher, to maintain a mastery of those concepts.
A large focus of the law major that I pursued in high school was public speaking in persuasive, informative, formal, informal, and instructional settings with exercises and assignments that emphasized practiced and impromptu speech presentation. After completing those courses, I feel comfortable speaking in front of any audience, and believe that I have learned the basic skills necessary to make public speaking achievable for anyone.
